Expats should fulfill certain conditions in order to be allowed to own property in Kuwait. You must be a permanent resident in Kuwait with enough income to purchase the property, and you should not have a criminal record. The property should be your only one in Kuwait; it shouldn’t be larger than 1,000 square meters, and be used for residential purposes only.
Rental homes in Kuwait come in all shapes and sizes: from one-bedroom apartments in skyscraper buildings to spacious single family homes, known as “villas”. Most expats in Kuwait either live in apartments or in compounds.
